Depart Seldovia 4pm
Arrive Homer 5.30pm
Come and explore the beauty of majestic Kachemak Bay, one of the richest, most diverse marine areas in Alaska. We will visit a vibrant seabird rookery, skirt the shoreline of Kachemak Bay State Park, take you through pristine glacial waters beneath the Kenai Mountain range past beautiful islands, glide over kelp forests in search of sea otters. You will have plenty of time to explore the Seldovia before our departure for Homer.
We expect to find abundant wildlife on the way, including many species of birds, humpback whales, seals, porpoises and sea lions. We also always hope to spot minke and orca (killer) whales.
Our past guests assure us that, not only was this the highlight of their visit to Alaska, but absolutely the best value there is.
Our tour has something for everyone and we look forward to sharing this beautiful bay with you.
Seldovia is a quaint, sleepy, authentic Alaskan community of just 270 year-round residents. The locals like to boast that “folks come to Seldovia for what is not here”, no malls, no touristy stores, no traffic, no crowds - just peace and quiet.
Have lunch in one of the excellent restaurants, or bring a pack lunch to enjoy in one of the many picnic spots overlooking the beautiful harbor.
We chart a straight course back across the bay to Homer, and as we venture further offshore, this is often when we have our most outstanding humpback whale encounters. We aim to be back in the harbor between 5.30 and 6pm, depending again on the abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities along the way, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the evening in our wonderful, vibrant home town of Homer.
